Love Sex Dreams: Your delusion, my reality Maryse Larivière

May 2 - May 23, 2015
Opening May 2, 7pm - 10pm

Fuck your negativity, your cynical crap and your boredom. Wipe that frown upside down. Don’t bring your bitching to Love Sex Dreams, the newest digital lounge and crusingworld to hit the downtown core. You think you’re fucking special? Nobody’s special at Love Sex Dreams. Everyone is glamorous, sexy, brilliant. We have social capital, secret codes, cigarettes, sexy objects, art objects, fetish objects, birds, fingers, a magic carpet, party lights, booze, a giant candle, dripping wax, an Italian pornstar-politician and an interview with her ex. Love Sex Dreams is pure seduction, pure surface. And nothing’s more seductive than the surface. Touch it lightly, playfully. Whisper to it. Tease it. Make quick breaths. Perfect. At Love Sex Dreams, everyone’s invited but nobody’s getting laid.
